Today I am starting a list of what I am grateful for. This is not a new thing. I journal everyday and the first thing I do every morning after I ride is write down what I am grateful for. I am not riding at the moment and because of the accident I have a broken left ulna. I am left handed so it is very difficult to write anything. I am not at this stage going to teach myself to be right handed! So instead of writing in my journal I am going to blog what I am grateful about. You can all choose to read it or not but I think it will be a very useful thing for me to do in my recovery!
I am grateful for being alive.
I am grateful for all the amazing staff at the Royal Brisbane Hospital who have saved my life.
I am grateful that my husband David was on the ride on Sunday ( which is very unusual) and came in the ambulance with me. I love him so so much.
I am grateful for Deb Aitcheson, Dave Shelberg, Marcel Bengston and all my other riding buddies for the amazing support and encouragement on the ride. Deb, Dave and Marcel thank you for holding my hand, back, head and whatever else you did on that mountain that day.
I am grateful and amazed I climbed Nebo and Glorious that day on my bike . I think I am amazing for doing so.
I am grateful for my Dad. He met us at the hospital and organized and liaised with everyone in the most professional manner. I believe the staff would have performed an amazing job regardless of Dad but Dad was amazing too!
I am grateful for my beautiful Mum. She has been like a fairy godfather going into our home making beds, doing washing etc and all without telling anyone. David comes home to a beautiful perfect house. She is just special.
I am grateful for all the love and support that I have received from everyone. I cannot elaborate on this as I am now crying.
That is enough for today. I will do some more tomorrow.
